Crystal Mountain - A Society for Eastern & Western Studies


Accommodation and Retreats

Crystal Mountain is a non-denominational society based in British Columbia, Canada, founded by students of Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche -- a Westerner trained in the Theravada and Vajrayana Buddhist traditions; to promote the development of the wholesome, clear, interested mind through study, meditation, and compassionate work. Membership is open to anyone in sympathy with these objectives. While recognizing the value and necessity of preserving and supporting traditional forms, our particular concern is with furthering the development of a Western expression of Buddha Dharma.
Some of our Activites:
Crystal Mountain sponsors teaching and retreats on Galiano Island, Vancouver, Bowen Island and Vancouver Island.
